Marianne Rice – Wilde For You

wildeBlurb: Event planner Sage Wilde has lots of lists and no time for a relationship… Precise to a fault, Sage plans everything—meetings, meals, and sex. But when she learns her youngest sister can’t carry a child, she steps up and commits to the role of a surrogate mother. It’s not out of sentiment, because Sage doesn’t do love or touchy-feely, but out of practicality. She doesn’t plan on marrying or having children, so why not rent out her unused space, right? Luke Riley is a sexy firefighter who’s looking for love in all the wrong places… Luke’s morning gets a little brighter when he’s called to a clinic and spots a blonde beauty wearing killer red boots. Though she doesn’t seem interested, he manages to introduce himself. It’s unusual for a woman to push away his advances, but Luke is attracted to her confident nature and strong personality. It’s not long before he wears her down, and she finally agrees to a date. Who says you can’t mix work with pleasure? Sage blames her growing affections for Luke on pregnancy hormones. But one last hurrah before her belly swells sounds like a well-deserved thrill. After a few passionate nights, the line between love and lust begins to blur—leaving her more confused than ever. Luke is mesmerized by her keen wit and social charm. She may claim not to want children, but when she befriends his troubled foster sister, it proves there’s a heart inside of Sage waiting to be loved. Will Sage’s surrogacy unlock her willingness to commit? Or will Luke stand by as the woman he loves plans a future without him?

Review: Well Marianne did it!

She managed to write the best book boyfriend I’ve ever read…

Nick is the perfect guy – a sexy, firefighter with a heart of gold and a sense of humor that will have you laughing out loud. And his determination is the sexiest thing about him! From the first moment he sees the feisty Sage Wilde standing outside in the cold wearing nothing but a hospital gown while she waits for the building to be confirmed safe to enter, he knows she’s it for him. Now all he has to do is convince her of that.

Sage is a tough as nails, self-proclaimed Ice Princess who has made a very clear decision she won’t ever fall in love and get married and have the expected 2.5 kids and a puppy. It’s just not on the cards for her. She doesn’t even like for people to think she has a heart. So when she offers to be a surrogate for her sister, Thyme and her husband who are desperate to become parents, everyone starts to see Sage in a new light. Including Sage.

Marianne does an impeccable job of redeeming Sage and thawing her icy heart. And Nick, well let’s just say it won’t be the last time I read this book ❤
